Lagranian Sea Ice Motion from RADARSAT-1 data
Entry ID: ASF_Sea_Ice_001

[ Get Data ]

Abstract: The Lagrangian products contain monthly measurements of dynamic and kinematic parameters over the Arctic Ocean sea ice cover. The analysis involves laying a 10km by 10km grid over a set of RADARSAT-1 orbits covering the sea ice cover during an initial 3-day period of a season. The grid points are then tracked over each ensuing 3-day time period throughout the season. The changes in the cells defined by the grid points are used to characterize the evolution of the ice within each cell.
